  1. 1. Will Julio Retire With Best YPG Ever?

    • Yes, Julio is an unrivaled Pimp
    • Julio is a pimp, but I’ll take the field

Julio is a bad man.  A pimp.  I think his only equal in the history of receivers is Jerry Rice.  Looking at just receiving yards, Julio averages 97 ypg.  That’s #1 by a large margin.  It’s 10 ypg more than Megatron and 20 you more than the GOAT, Jerry Rice.  

@PriMeTiiMe also provided some interesting nuggets.  

Julio averaged 105.8 YPG in his last 6 seasons. Absolutely ridiculous. 

To put things into perspective in his 1st two seasons he averaged 74.35 YPG which would be 16th all-time. Not bad for a young guy as the 3rd wheel behind Roddy and Tony G. Then he took over as the #1 and in his last 6 seasons his average of 105.8 is 13 yards more than 2nd place (Odell 92.8) and 19.6 yards more than 3rd place (AB 86.2)

So what’s your opinion: will Julio retire as the greatest yards per game receiver of all time?

Ain't nothing 'til he gets a ring...just like Matt, no discussion of how great he is 'til he gets a ring...no where near the HOF 'til he gets a ring...stats mean nothing 'til he gets a ring. Just trying to keep it all in perspective.

I don’t really ascribe to this train of thought.

Well if we didn't get a ring after 28-3 we are never getting one.

Yes, but he will only do so if he starts showing up to OTA's

:ninja:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but he didn't show up to OTA's last year and led the league in receiving yards...

 

That's not good enough, cause how long did it take him to get a TD last year...we have gotta get him to start showing up at OTA's, so he can get TDs earlier in the year.  :lol:

Julio and Matt put the team in a great position to win...coaching screwed that up.

And? if we ever get thier again we will have coaches still. 28-3 is pretty much as bad as the Bills at this point and they never got back I never expect us to have a SB gift wrapped for us again.

per game #'s are not as great as total #'s - I think he will sign a big contract soon and play out that contract until the last year in which he is older and probably only getting 4-5 receptions, 75 or so yards a game.  However, his total yard #'s will be among the greatest.

1.  There

2.  Every superbowl winning team has coaches

3.  We aren't the Bills

4.  Gift wrapped superbowls aren't the only ones we can win

5.  You are a ******* idiot

6.  You are a huge ******* idiot

When Julio retires no one will care if he won a ring outside of Atlanta fans.

Does anyone care if Fitz has not won anything? He got to a SB and lost just like Julio did. TO same thing. Moss same thing. 

As long as he finishes his career top 5 in receiving yards he will be in the HOF. It is not easy to accumulate 15,000+ receiving yards.

As to answer the question, it will depend on how long he sticks around. Father time catches up to everyone eventually even the freaks of nature. Julio has 2-4 more "great" seasons but could probably play far longer if he wanted to at a lower level. I think he will sign 1 last extension this off-season and play that out and retire as a Falcon without playing for any other team. He will finish #2 all-time in receiving yards at around 18-19k and still the holder of most receiving yards per game all-time.
